Freud and Daughter: a deconstructed spectacle, digital sculpture, 33 x 24 x 11 cm, 2021.
The sculpture is placed on a table on the half landing between Freud’s study on the first floor and Anna’s room on the second floor.

The Freud Museum virtual residency opened my eyes to the potential for virtual and hypothetical sculpture. Being able to work with an existing museum object was an exciting and rare opportunity. I chose to explore a small jade brooch that Sigmund Freud had gifted his daughter Anna as a way of showing his professional respect for her contribution to the field of psychoanalysis.

Celebrating Sigmund and Anna Freud's intriguing relationship, their professional achievements, and their ability to provide both children and adults with a new outlook on inner world feelings, I deconstructed the brooch and presented it as two jade hoops positioned as a lens through which viewers would could 'hypothetically' look.
